Ruddy, hazy beer with a light tan head. Smells of wet oak, vanilla, figs, caramel and booze. Taste is bitter, oak, vanilla, caramel and some hot booze. A really bitter and boozy aftertaste. Not a bad beer but not quite balanced.

Cork and cage bottle, dated October 2015. I'm an outlier here, but I find this to be really delightful. The fig and raisin adds a subtle depth of flavor, without being overpowering or the only attraction. There's a balanced Belgian to be found lying underneath, particularly as the beer warms, but I do love the fruited notes.

Look: It pours a cloudy, murky brown with a tanish head that is full.

Smell: It has a sweet malt base with aromas of caramel, raisins, figs, hints of apple, and bready aromas.

Taste: It has an initial taste that is sweet, then turns to a combination of sour and hoppy. The apple with alcohol favors and caramel malt with hints of cherry tobacco and highlighter with the fig, raisins and floral hops coming on as the flavor lingers. As it warms a bit there is also a vinous flavoring at the end as well.

Feel: It has a moderately heavy fell to it. There is a sharply bitter after taste with alcohol warming that is slightly on the hot side.

Overall: This is a complex brew that reminds me more of a flavored barley wine than a fruit beer mixed in a dubbel. The different waves of flavoring were impressive, but it was a little hot on the palate as opposed to warming.

Bottled in 2013. Poured from a cork and cage into a snifter, the beer is a deep, ruby-tinted burgundy coloring with a thin halo of white head. Aromas of booze, wood, rich fruit notes of fig and raisin, red wine characteristics, and a tangy candied backbone. Nose is very sweet and powerful. Flavors are very rich and fruity forward, with notes of apple, fig, raisin, date, and plum, with a ribbon of booze in the backbone, and subtle roasted toffee notes. Very smooth and balanced, despite leaning towards the sweet end of the spectrum. The beer is slick, smooth, and robust in mouth, and there is a boozy and fruit sweet aftertaste. The finish is slick and clean, with a subtle hint of rich fruit linger. Really flavorful, yet extremely drinkable. Tasty brew.
